The annual 5K race series is organized by local volunteers from Team Go! Malawi, which consists of local walkers and runners who share a common vision: “To Run With a Purpose, For a Purpose”. They challenge themselves to be physically fit and to make a positive global change supporting Go! Malawi. They are looking for a few more team members to join them in their destination marathon or half marathon this fall. If you are interested in running for the team or joining Team Go! Malawi please contact race director Andrew Bonarrigo @firstname.lastname@example.org, or board members Reade Brower @ Reade@freepressonline.com or Janet Littlefield @ Janet@go-malawi.org
